Well we couldn’t have asked for better weather. The 1st Annual DHL Charity Car Show was great. It was to benefit the American Heart Association and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk.
We had cars from all eras, all makes, a few bikes, trikes, and even a rail car-dune-buggy looking thing. I haven’t done a great deal of automotive photography, (although I was published once in Sport Truck Magazine thankyouverymuchD ) but I do like Automobiles a lot, so I wouldn’t mind getting to shoot them more often.
This Nova was one of my favorites of the show. Really slick paint, great attention to detail, immaculate interior, and the power to back it all up. (Click on Photos to view large)
Just look at that engine bay- You could cook hot-dogs on the manifold AND eat them!
They had a really cool DJ playing great music all day. Notice the 17″ Macbook Pro. FTW!
A Supercharged (and I’m sure super-fast) Lingenfelter Corvette was out. Complete with a giant hood intake vent.
I think this next truck had to be another one of the slickest of the show. Just an amazing looking vehicle from any angle. He won two awards- Best Interior, and The DHL Choice Award.
The Brickhouse girls presenting the awards to the owner of the above truck…
The Chevelle Car Club made a strong showing with around 14 cars total…
Marco and his Satin Black ’70 Chevelle won the Best Under Construction Award

This guy was a show-stopper. When he rolled up in this ’60 Caddie, every head turned. It was even cooler when he dropped the tail on the ground with a loud “SSSSSSSSSSSSS”
A clean pair of bikes…
Check out the magnificent glass-like paint on this extraordinary ’67 Vette
Winner of the Rev it Up contest with his award in front of his Orange 502 El Camino SS. It was pretty funny- he kept it tame at first being relatively quiet, but when he opened up those exhaust dumps, people gasped and heart-rates increased, bringing a grin to every guys face within 1 square mile
You’ll want to click on the next picture. As people were pulling out, they took their turns layin’ some rubber. This was one of the more spectacular displays.
Not much smoke on the next one. With such fat cheater slicks mounted, it was just grab and go. If you look real close, you can see the tires wrinkle.
And the DHL Crew and Volunteers.
I had a blast at the event, and look forward to shooting more automotive subjects in the future.

Keep in mind too, that 25% of all Print Sales from this even is benefiting the American Heart Association and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. So go ahead and purchase a nice large print or several, and donate to a good cause at the same time.
Until next time,
